Minutes matter when someone has a heart attack or stroke. When you see someone in distress you know how important it is to take immediate action. When a woman facing an unexpected pregnancy calls our clinic for an appointment, time matters just as much. Because one precious life hangs in the balance, while another patient - the mother - is in need of critical care.
But what if getting to our clinic means a two hour ride, with 3 bus transfers, and temperatures dipping to zero? That is the reality for many women who need our help. Women like Mia, who live on the other side of the Isthmus and face that long bus ride.
You can help us reach more women like Mia with your special gift. Your gift will do even more this year by helping us share the good news of help and hope both in our clinic and in our mobile unit. And you’ll also provide pregnant women with a safe place to live, at The Elizabeth House.
